Kinder Children's Choirs of High Peak

INTERNATIONAL award-winning Kinder Children’s Choirs will be looking to ‘Raise the Roof’ during a gala concert at St George’s Parish Church, New Mills, on Saturday March 5, from 7.30pm.

The event is intended to be the first in a short season of musical evenings to mark the completion of extensive restoration work to repair the spire and roofing of the 180-year-old heritage building.

St George’s welcomes all its friends and supporters to join in this joyful event, which will be equally suitable for young and not-so-young.

Refreshments will be served.

The Kinder Children’s Choirs of the High Peak have been one of the major success stories of the cultural life of the borough since their formation in 1991 by their inspirational Founder Director Joyce Ellis.

They are firmly established as one of the UK’s foremost children’s choral organisations.

Tickets, priced £7 (concessions £5), can be obtained in advance from Priscilla’s Card Shop, Market Street, or can be reserved by calling the ticket hotline on 01663 743147 or emailing admin@newmillschurch.co.uk.
